Things That Fit On This

Greetings from Cambridge, MA. 

Late Summer Edition.  This is the time of year when the shop is rather bare, but we love it this way.  As new items for Fall slowly trickle in, our space is recreated. New colors and textures begin to inform the mood for the next few months.

Our collection this round was inspired by one of the many rustic antique stools that recently arrived. This one had a particular kidney bean shaped seat and its character just seemed to pipe up more than the others. So, we shot things that fit on it.  It's a group of our favorite items in this moment and some are even new for Fall. Hope you enjoy. 

HEADS UP:  Pod will be closed August 26th - September 4th. This includes our brick and mortar shop and our online shop.

Summer Sale is On

--much adored retail colleague who will go un-named--

SALE.  It's a word that evokes many things. It may mean the opportunity to purchase a coveted item that didn't fit into the budget at an earlier time. It sometimes signals a jump-start on holiday shopping. And to some, YAHOOO! Just one more reason to shop, shop, and treat yourself or a friend. Whatever the reason is, there are usually a lot of smiles at our sale and that's just fine by us. 

For a shopkeeper though, a sale is always a welcomed way to clean house and mentally prepare for what our next presentation or direction will be. It also allows for the humbling opportunity to acknowledge that the 'oh people are going to love this...' item wasn't such a great idea after-all and... it needs to move along. They can't all be winners and in this way, shopkeeping is a whole lot like gambling. Except, we get to experience daylight and there's a lot less smoking involved.

Here on our site, we're highlighting a few items that are on sale this Summer. There's plenty more in our shop and we hope you'll come by to poke around. The discounts are deep and we're aiming to wrap this up fairly quickly. Don't delay.

Online Sale Begins Tuesday July 17th.
In-Store Sale Begins Wednesday July 18th and will end Saturday July 21st.

End of the School Year Ice-Pop Social: Thursday, June 14th

Thrilled to be hosting Shira Gold's small-batch venture Wild Pops this Thursday, June 14th from 2:30p-4:30p. A Brookline native, Shira relocated her L.A. based popsicle company to Jamaica Plain last year. While Wild Pops are currently found at the Wild Pop Shop, SOWA, and farmer's markets on that side of the Charles River, we're grateful she's making the trek our way, but would love to find Wild Pops a stockist closer to home.  Anyone? Anyone? 

So, we're officially putting the call out to all eager-to-be-let free kids, exhausted-from-the-overscheduling parents, and over-extended teachers. Temperatures are rising and the last day of school is seconds away. How about we all celebrate with small-batch, all natural, locally made ice-pops. With flavors like Belgian chocolate, coconut, watermelon, and spicy pineapple how can we go wrong? Pops will be $4 each. Let's give Wild Pops a proper YAHOOOO!

Tell your freinds. Bring your dogs. Everyone is welcome.
